When Australia’s Got Talent finishes its (2-part) Grand Final, stick around for the universal edition, World’s Got Talent.

To be hosted by American / British judge Piers Morgan, the show’s judges will include Dannii Minogue, David ‘the Hoff’ Hasselhoff, Brandy and Simon Cowell..

“The Eurovision’s not perfect – that’s why we want to have a go at doing something that rivals it,” said Simon Cowell. “But it’s watched and enjoyed by millions of people around the world.

“There will be some countries’ acts that make you laugh and cringe. They won’t be to everyone’s liking, but that’s the whole point – it gets people talking and arguing. But I think we can get genuine talent.”

Cowell also appeared as a judge on the international World Idol edition in 2003.

World’s Got Talent airs 8:30pm Tues July 1 and All Saints screens at 9:30pm.
